LinkedIn blackmail is happening way more than you think. If you are being blackmailed with your personal information, seek out help today!
LinkedIn blackmail can play out in different ways. Here are two examples of the most popular tactics blackmailers use to obtain their victim’s private information on LinkedIn.
Phishing scams are a tactic that consists of scammers sending emails claiming to be from a legitimate company such as LinkedIn. The goal of the email is to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, and passwords, or they can even send you a link that is embedded with malware that once you click can gain access to your device and personal information.
Scammers also use LinkedIn under false identities or by impersonating real people to try and steal people’s money, collect personal information such as their social security, or build a relationship to collect personal content such as images that can later be used for extortion or also known as sextortion.

The best way to protect yourself from Tinder blackmail is to never send anyone any compromising photos or videos in the first place. If you're worried that someone may try to blackmail you, it's also a good idea not to share any sensitive personal information — such as your full name, address, or workplace — on the app or your other social media platforms.
The most effective way to protect yourself from LinkedIn scams is by being extremely cautious about the information you share with people. Be sure to only interact with people you know and trust. Not everyone online is who they say they are. You should also be aware of what you are clicking on. Tons of scam emails get sent out daily! LinkedIn has stated that they will never ask you to click any link to save your account from closing or for any other reason.
